Quantification of a virus is required for research protein production, vaccine manufacturing, and scientific publication. Viruses, however, are too small to be counted by naked eyes, therefore they can be enumerated by a method called plaque assay. Unfortunately,  plaque assay is highly technical and takes many rounds of practice. The most popular way is to perform tissue culture infectious dose assays (TCID50).

Increase Construction Productivity with Mobile Time Tracking Apps

Article | February 17, 2020

Since the 1950’s, United States agricultural and manufacturing industries have increased their productivity rates by 1,000%. In stark contrast, productivity rates for the U.S. construction industry haven’t increased at all. Thanks to the rise of construction-technology, there are less obvious and less expensive ways to become more efficient. And they don’t involve completely changing the way you build. Instead, they use mobile apps to speed up or automate time-consuming administrative tasks. So you, your employees and your subs can spend less time on “busy work” and more time on the work that moves your projects forward.
